In another example of the experimentation with set lists that occured during this period, a Greatest Sory second set opener. For three shows in close proximity, it is the opener. Every other time it is played in thesecond set, which isn't often, it is paired - usually with Alabama or Bertha.

Subject: Not usually into Space...
I generally don't get that into Drums/Space, because to me it is more of a visual thing to watch them do what they do, but this Space>Wharf Rat was freakin' awesome.

Subject: About that Philly thing
I saw 40 shows in aisle that went down from the press box seats on Jerry's side (later days). Ans some nights (Not too many)the parking lot was better than the music inside.

Philly is known more for booing. But it's because we boo when booing is deserved. I saw Sam and Dave get booed off that stage for trying to mail it in. Other bands put on a bogus show and get nothing back. You couldn't pass that stuff off on a philly crowd.

But when bands got it right, there were few places where the crowd was as appreciative.

A smart band-like the grateful dead knew this wasn't a bunch of lemmings going nuts. everything you read is about here love affair with their crowd.

That and having FDR field wide open for one of the best inner city parking areas for 4 days around a 3 night stop didn't hurt either.

It was a greeat scene.

This was an OUTSTANDING, HIGHLY ENERGIZED SHOW FROM ALABAMA, ON!!!!JERRY SOUNDED GREAT, & PHILWAS DROPPING BOMBS GALORE!!!! THAT HE'S GONE, OTHER ONE WAS LIKE A GREAT WHITE OFF THE HOOK!!!! ANY TIME YOU GET THE FORTUNE OF A 2nd set ALTHEA,CHANCES ARE YOU ARE LISTENG TO A SMOKER,WHICH THIS WAS!!!!THE SPECTRUM DOES HAVE AWESOME ACOUSTICS, SIMILAR TO THE CENTRUM!!!! YOU CANT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS GDTRFB,AND WHOEVER SAID THIS SHOW HAD POOR SOUND,NEEDS TO GET THEIR EARS CHECKED!!!! DURING WHARF RAT, I THOUGHT JERRY WAS ACTUALLY GONNAGET UP AND FLY AWAY!!!! Great job GUYS,STARTED THE 80's OFF IN GREAT FASHION!!!!

Subject: Excellent high octane early 80's show
Why can't all early 80's boards sound as good as this recording? The mix is great with Phil prominent throughout the show. I thoroughly enjoyed both sets. The whole band is high energy and it shows in their singing and playing. I have always been amazed at how well the boys played at the Spectrum. I don't know if it is because the crowd is super amped or the acoustics are good or a combination of factors....... If I had to pick a favorite slice of music from this show it would have to be Jerry going off big time on Wharf Rat and GDTRFB. Check it out!

Subject: Let It Grow
How many times did it get solo second set play. A few scattered shows, not only is the placement note-able, but the actual power in this night rendition is through the roof.

One of the better early 80s Let It Grows.

Subject: Saint
This show is very good. I fine recording I think. This St. was on a mix a friend gave me called reckoning. It was a great mix and i played it until it skipped. The whole show is hot hot hot.. good choice.

Subject: Front row for this show
Through a contact of my dad's, I got section 102, row 1 seats 10-11. Took my girl and during the first set she needed to go to the bathroom and wanted me to come with her. I had never been that close, so I begged off and she never made it back up front. Remember Lost Sailor/St. being off the wall. Great second set as well. Young guy that made it up front had a whole sheet of Mickey the wizard and between songs in the first set, got out the sheet, tore off a couple of hits, nodded at Jerry (who appeared to be looking right at him) Jer pointed and laughed.....ahhh memories of the Spectrum scicorso

Subject: Spectrum??
What is it with this place? I mean every show I hear coming out of the Spectrum, much less Philadelphia are all just knockouts no matter the year. This one is exceptional.
